Best Minecraft Seeds (2020) – Xbox One, PS4, & All Platforms!

We're taking a look at some of the best seeds for Minecraft!

Our Minecraft Best Seeds post features a bunch of newly found seeds to some good areas to start your next Minecraft world. We have cool seeds for every type and version of the game! Seeds are a great way to get your adventure started in an exciting area. With the random nature of landscape creation in the game, it's nice to at least have some guarantee of what you are getting yourself into.

Our list of some of the best Minecraft seeds will give you a bunch of fun starting point options for your next world! I've listed what version of Minecraft they will work with. Bedrock works with the Windows 10, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and mobile versions! We'll be listing some coordinates along with each seed, so that you can check out some key areas in the various areas of the world. You can enable coordinates when you create a world in Bedrock or use the F3 key on Java. You can also make your way over to the spot or use the /teleport command!

Spawn in Woodland Mansion on an Island Seed

This would be a great survival type seed, because you spawn right inside a woodland mansion that is on a small island. That's a great place to start and turn into your own little evil lair. From here, you can boat or swim over to a village that is pretty close by. If you head up river, you will see a savanna biome and you will go through a desert biome and run right into another village! If you head in the opposite direction, you will find another pretty nice land mass with some desert and a ruined portal.

If you want a jammed packed seed right at the spawn then this one delivers! You will find two Woodland Mansions that spawn really close together which is apparently quite rare. You've got a village in-between those, and another village not too far from there. There's a swamp biome (get yourself some slimeballs) along with a Witch Hut, and you can even find a Ruined Portal nearby.

Fans of water and rivers will want to start up a new world for this seed right away! You spawn right in the middle of an area where multiple rivers converge and it makes the landscape look very impactful. Not only that, there's a village very close by, as well as a Witch Hut that you can use for potions or maybe taming a black cat! You also have access to a ruined portal in a mountainous area, a taiga village, and a birch forest all around you. There's a whole lot to love about this seed if you like variety.

This is a pretty cool seed because there's this great looking savanna village that is overlapped with a dark oak forest biome. You're also right near a desert as well, so there's three biomes connected at the village. There's also a very large ravine right near the village that you can explore. At spawn, you will find a village right nearby that's worth checking out! If you head into the desert, there's a couple of pyramids and another village.

If you're looking for a huge Woodland Mansion at spawn then this seed will be great for you! There's also a nearby swamp, and a flower forest within easy walking distance. You'll also find a pretty nice village right on the beach that has a dock and is really well designed.

This might be one of the most unique seeds I've ever come across. The main attraction is the spawn, where you start out on a huge skinny mushroom island. This is a rare biome, and the attraction of it is that monsters will not spawn on it. There's also a Ruined Portal on this island which will make for some easy loot. So it's a great safe place to build out your base. From here, you can find a cold ocean with some awesome icebergs, mountain biome, and another ruined portal. If you keep heading towards land from here, you'll come across a swamp biome with a Witch Hut. There's also a shipwreck stuck in an iceberg that looks awesome. If you head even further, you will find a desert biome with a pyramid, as well as a really great desert village that spans over some mountains! You even get some snow here because it mixed with the mountain biome.

The Nether is a solid one if you head into the portal near your spawn. You'll find all of the biomes you want within a reasonable distance of each other. You can also find a Fortress and Bastion Remnant nearby if you want to explore those!

  • Ruined Portal: -325 66 372

If you want a variety of biomes nearby then this is a great Java seed for that! There's a swamp, dark forest, mesa, and desert biome all nearby the spawn. The mesa is absolutely huge, and it features at least three exposed spider spawners in it! You'll also find quite a few mine cart chests on tracks all-around the area. You'll also find a couple of villageds not too far away from the spawn as well. The Nether is a pretty good spawn once you get out from the caves. You'll find a warped forest, soul sand valley, and crimson forest all within range of each other. There's also a bastion remnant and large fortress to explore!

If you're looking for various villages, biomes, and a few ruined portals then this seed could be a good option for you. One of the nice features of this one is the savanna village that is partially on a hill with a waterfall on it. You've got three different ruined portals scattered around some of the biomes near the spawn. There's a desert village, pillager outpost, and a second desert village to explore! In the Nether, you'll find a warped forest and a huge basalt delta if you put your portal near the spawn. There's a soul sand valley not too far from it, and if you venture deeper into the zone you'll find a bastion remnant!

This was a surprising seed, because I just kept coming across additional generated structures! You spawn in-between two villages and large ravines. The area here is pretty flat, so you could build out this area relatively easily. If you head towards the desert biome, you will find two different villages and three pyramids to explore! If you get further from spawn, you'll find a pretty interesting floating island. There's also a ravine nearby with a mine to be explored. In the nether you'll spawn right in a huge basalt delta biome, along with a soul sand and crimson forest not too far away!

Key Locations

  • Plains Village: 137 66 -236

This is a really beautiful seed with the contrast of the varying colors of the mesa surrounding this bit of jungle biome. You spawn very close to this area in a pretty large jungle that eventually turns into the mesa. This is how you end up with the mix of distinct areas, which would make for a great place to build. There's a ton of mines in the mesa area, you can find a spider spawner exposed as well.

If you decide to go away from spawn across the ocean, you'll find a pretty nice savanna island with a couple of exposed shipwrecks to explore!

Key Locations

  • Jungle Surrounded by Mesa: -42 69 -740
  • Exposed Mine: 353 71 -747
  • Exposed Spider Spawner: 287 69 -886

Wow, this is a great seed to start out on! Not only do you spawn right in a large village on an island that is surrounded by ice, you're also a stones throw away from an ocean monument that you can explore. There's more monuments to find as well, plus many ruins and shipwrecks you should come across. If you want to find a mainland area, you can find it not too far from your spawn (listed in the coordinates below). It has many different biomes on it, I found mountains, forest, dark forest, and even swamp!

  • Ocean Monument: 142 61 112

If you're looking for a seed to start at a mushroom biome, then you can do a lot worse than this one! We've got the nice sized mushroom biome to keep out the monsters, but we've also got nearby Badlands with a mine to explore! Not only that, not too far from the mushrooms and the badlands is a village to visit.

  • Badlands Biome/Mine: 220 71 662

What is a Minecraft Seed?

A seed is a randomly generated number that represents a specific world that has been created when you start a new game of Minecraft. This seed can be used by other players to play in the exact world you are playing in!

How-to Use Minecraft Seeds

Using Seeds in Minecraft is relatively simple, and the process is largely the same across all versions of the game. When you are creating a new world, look for the "More World Options..." area, or in some cases you'll just find a blank text box that you can paste your seed code into.

Minecraft how to use a seed example

Once you find this box, paste the particular seed you want to load into it and you're done! The more complicated part, is that some seeds don't work for some versions of the game. For example, all positive seeds (numbers without a - at the beginning of them) are usable from Bedrock to Java. Furthermore, if you have a negative seed from Bedrock, you have to add 4294967296 to it for it to work in the Java version (Learn more here). Finally, negative Java seeds will NOT work in Bedrock at all. There will be irregularities between Bedrock and Java seeds, which can include differences in neutral temperature and ocean biomes.

If you've got an updated version of Minecraft on your mobile device or console (Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One), then all Bedrock codes should work!

What's the Best Seed in Minecraft?

There is no best seed for Minecraft! It's very subjective and based on how you want to play. If you want to play on a seed surrounded by water, then make sure to pick an Island Seed. If you want more variety, then make sure to select a seed that has a lot of biomes in a small area.

Specific Seed Types

If you are looking for a specific type of seed, then we have some separate pages that delve deeper into those:

Seed Versions

You will now see version numbers listed on each of the below seeds. If you are using a previous or more updated version of the game, it might sometimes appear differently in your world! This does not mean you shouldn't try them or give one a shot, because a lot of the time they will be largely the same.
